Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (Signet Classics)

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson, Vladimir Nabokov, Dan Chaon Atmospheric. Noir. Humane.I'd call Mr. Stevenson a master of suspense, if we didn't all know Mr. Hyde is Dr. Jeckyll's alter-ego, a projection of his baser urges. But I can tell this novel was crafted as an avant-garde thriller, which became a paradigm of human dualities . Not the turning-page type, though, but the one that takes its time to savour. I believe that is what makes it such a delicious read.
